Jammin' with Jack Hadley & His Band


I met Jack Hadley at last year's Cherry Creek Arts Festival.  His singing, guitar playing and personality all blew me away and we've been jammin' ever since.

In April, we headed into the studio to begin recording songs for an upcoming soul & blues CD and to record the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival Song which will be used to promote the festival.  Jack's incredible band joined in, as well as, some of my friends and members of the Dragon Boat committee.

New Year's Eve In Austin Texas

After weathering the blizzards that kept me from making it home to Chicago for the holidays -  I had to go see the Subdudes for New Year's Eve in Austin!

They put on a great show!  I also got to hang out at the Continental Club and meet one of my favorite guitar players - Redd Volkeart.  I also jammed some Stevie Ray Vaughan mando-style!


Back at the Oriental Theater

I continue having a wonderful time playing the Oriental Theater!  

Thursday, May 24th, 2007, 7:00pm we'll be celebrating Bob Dylan's Birthday with the 2nd Annual All-star Tribute to Bob Dylan and benefit for DPS Foundation Music Programs 

 

 

The first tribute show I performed at was on Van Morrison's Birthday.  They contacted me the day before the show - which happened to be my birthday.  I had to quickly learn two songs (that weren't already taken by the other performing artists).  

 


Pickin' Parties

I was on a break from House Concerts and decided to have a couple Pickin' Parties.  At the first acoustic jam I also celebrated Chinese New Year and made some of my favorite Chinese dishes.  The second event was a BBQ jam while my brother was visiting from Chicago and we plugged in the electric guitars.

You can see more photos of the parties at the Highlands House Concerts site.


Other Adventures

My brother was visiting from Chicago and we hiked, watched Jack play with his band, went up in a hot air balloon over Boulder and stopped by Red Rocks.

The new Red Rocks Amphitheater Museum has a wall of plaques with everyone who has ever performed there through the years.  I'm standing underneath the plaque with Zebra Junction's name on it.

I was fortunate enough to perform with Zebra Junction there when they opened for their "Film on the Rocks" movie series.  It was a blast to open for one of my very favorite movies - the Princess Bride.
